Good Morning Christmas Playlist

Our "Good Morning Playlist" has been a household success.  We are now auditioning Christmas tracks to insert between our regular favorites.  As before, the music must have the ability to jump-start our morning, which excludes much contemplative Christmas music.  (I love it but it doesn't get the kids going.  I mean, they love it too, but not in the morning.)  Here is the hour-long Spotify playlist thus far, subject to change without notice!  Our regular tracks are in bold:

Hark, the Herald Angels Sing (Mannheim Steamroller)
Every Knee Shall Bow (Twila Paris)
Christmas Don't Be Late (The Chipmunks)
I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) (The Proclaimers)
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (T-Bone Burnett)
Beautiful Day (U2)
Blue Christmas (Elvis Presley)
I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas (Gayle Peevey)
O Come All Ye Faithful and Joy to the World (Canadian Brass)
Mary's Little Boy Child (Harry Connick, Jr.)
I Wonder as I Wander (John Rutter/Cambridge Singers)
O Holy Night (Bing Crosby)
Chorus Finale on Schiller's Ode to Joy from Symphony No. 9 (Beethoven)
A Mad Russian's Christmas (Trans-Siberian Orchestra)
Walking on Sunshine (Katrina and the Waves)

Note the last three songs-- the last fifteen minutes remind us to do our last things and get into the living room for Bible or out the door for our appointments!
